As I was kissing M goodbye this morning, I realized I had forgotten to put his baggy of carrots into his lunch box. I fetched them and he unzipped his lunch box for me. On top was the note I put in, just as I do everyday.
M: You know, the first thing I do when I get to my office is open my lunch to read your note. I never wait until lunch. And, I keep every one. They are in my desk drawer.
My M is not always a man of many words, but I know what he was saying to me, either way. The look on his face as he speaks says volumes.
I miss you and think of you just as much every day, M. I appreciate the ‘little’ things you do for me, too.
P.S. I sure hope there’s a lock on that desk drawer.
